Guns do not kill people! People kill people! Guns just get in the wrong hands! That is the main problem.so sorry for all the victims,families,friends,and society.

The usual mantra. No my friend, guns DO kill people by the tens of thousands in the US every year. The fact is you can’t vet everyone who applies for a gun licence, so by the law of averages, some are almost certainly going to be mentally disturbed. It might take years for the true effect to be felt, but the only way to change society is an outright ban on weapons, other than for security forces, police and farmers. I’m not naïve, it ain’t gonna happen. But that is what NEEDS to happen.

Lay a gun down on a table. If no one is pulling the trigger, will it just start shooting on its own? No, it’s the PERSON behind the gun, NOT the gun.

That makes absolutely NO sense whatsoever. Are you going to outlaw knives? Hammers? Baseball bats, too?

Yeah…. Getting rid of guns… Gkod idea. Let rape and viokent crime sky rocket. Like obama said, brittain and australia did it… Who do u thing has the most violent crimes per capita. Guns from mexico, and more than likely other areas, along with the ones that people already own. Good luck going door to door. Try doing it yourself.

I think your opinion is wrong even if guns were illegal due you think murders would obey the law come now it will only encourage violent behavior.

I think you can separate college-style homicides from your average criminal related homicide. The psychos who carry out college massacres are NOT criminals per se. So banning guns might well have an immediate effect on this style of killing as they are likely to buy their guns legally from gun stores or ‘borrow’ a weapon from a family member. Criminals will always have access to guns, but they are highly unlikely to be interested in taking out college students.

On the same day as Sandy hook, 22 helpless people were massacred in a Chinese market by a nut with a machete.
